Here is the current illustration for a character for a 2D RPG video game currently in production. The game itself is darker and more sombre in tone than typical RPG games. The characters themselves should retain a vibrancy and feeling of life. The darker tones should come through more in the colour choices, as is shown in the current illustration.
What I am looking for is the same design presented re-illustrated in a more polished and professional look.
- Current illustration is amateur, and I want to elevate it to a more professional level on-par with illustrations used in the professional game industry today.
- Final illustration needs to be to a higher calibre, still a semi-realistic style.
- Final illustration must be full body, in a pose that conveys personality and character.
- The character is named Samantha. One of the attached images includes some details as to her life and personality.
- The outfit is a short plaid skirt (very kilt-like). She is wearing a red tank with a hand-made leather vest over-top of it. Make-up is dark lips with a bright eye-shadow. Although not featured in the illustration, she wears bulky combat boots with white socks peaking out.
- The illustration should be provided in a Photoshop (PSD) format.
- The illustration should be a relatively large raster file so I can resize if need be or if wanting to utilize in promotional materials. Large constitutes at least 1500-2000 pixels in height.
Attached is the original illustration and concept artwork to give a sense of look, colours, and details.
